LOCHGELLY Community Council wants to get closer to the people of the town by having outlets throughout the community that could accept items from members of the public on the council's behalf.

Said community council secretary Louise Brown: "We would like to recruit more business volunteers who would be happy to take notes/letters in to pass along to us, so we have someone in most areas of the town for easier access to us.

"Any businesses who might be interested in helping can drop me a wee email and we will get it organised.

"I can be contacted by email at lochgellycc-sec@hotmail.com or Leah at Special Occasion,s on the High Street, will be happy to take notes for us and pass them along for those who don’t have access to email."
